Ohhh your poor post-holiday liver. It’s probably in pain right now. Having done several 21 and 30-day detoxes, and having been sober for 11 months at one point (you know, the whole baby making thing) I have a set of tools to help me successfully complete a month without drinking that I hope will support you. Foods for the liver Greens, duh. Beets and beet juice. Since beet juice is gross, I juice them with carrots and oranges. The liver detoxes the body, so we want to help it out with watery foods: Celery Cucumber Watermelon Apples See below for…

Everyone has a toxic load. Yup, you too babe. We don’t live on farms and it’s not 1910 anymore. Fact: The world we live in today has more toxins than ever before. If you’re having issues and modern medicine is having a hard time finding a root cause, it’s very possible that said root cause lies in your toxic load. Hair falling out? Trouble sleeping? Can’t lose weight? Tired all of the time? Can’t think clearly? Constipation? And you’re doing the things that should technically work, but still feeling crappy? Then it’s time, my friend, to take a serious look…

Epic Manhattan sunset views from Brooklyn

This summer we went on a family holiday to NYC and then spent five days relaxing in the Hamptons, and since we took our one-year-old I’d like to rephrase this by saying: “We recently travelled with our baby to NYC and spent five days taking care of our child in the Hamptons”. As I quickly discovered, traveling with a kid is no joke. Nevertheless, it was still really nice so here are my notes that I hope you will appreciate:   BROOKLYN Eat: La Esquina for garden tacos Shelter for pizza Leuca for nice Italian Meadowsweet for brunch Sunday in Brooklyn for brunch…

There are soooo many essential oils to choose from, but I recommend starting with these 5 bad boys because they are super multi-purpose and can support almost any health goal you have. 1. PEPPERMINT: Think cooling, digestion, headaches, breathing, oral health & energy The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753.  Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally. Digestive support Take one to two drops in a Veggie Capsule to alleviate…

To recap from my previous posts, essential oils come from healing plants and act as antibacterial, anti-fungal and insecticidal agents to said plants to allow them to flourish in nature. Because humans and plants share similar cellular functions, what is beneficial for some plants can also be beneficial for us. Hence why we painstakingly find ways to consume kale! Because essential oils hold internal benefits for the body, many people use them for things like promoting healthy cell function, supporting gastrointestinal health, or maintaining healthy immune function. Essential oils provide a safe, natural way to deal with many of the…

Hiya! Here’s some quick info on the importance of choosing a good quality essential oil, and why I choose to buy from doTERRA.   First off, the purity of your oils is paramount, because you need purity in order to have therapeutic effects. Impure in the bottle = impure in your body.   WHY PURITY IN EOs IS IMPORTANT Where the plant is grown, how it is harvested, how it is distilled and how it is preserved are imperative for therapeutic essential oils. 98% of essential oils on the market are either food or perfume-grade oils, meaning they are used in…

PREAMBLE: WHY YOU NEED TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH ‘Cause it was written in the stars… In astrology, (oh shit, I’m starting with the woo-woo already!)  they are saying that we’ve entered a period of global awakening; that between now and 2024 we will see a massive shift in consciousness as people wake up from the current paradigms plaguing our society today (ahem, Trump). A big part of this movement and prediction is that people will begin to take back control of their lives and of their health. Us ladies are very intuitive beings, especially moms. The process of creating and…

I’ve spent the majority of my time in London in Shoreditch, living, working or just hanging. You can get all of my restaurant reccos here, but there’s much more to do so I encourage you to venture to this part of East London to get a taste of a more vibrant and grimy side of the city. TOURISTY THINGIES Columbia Road Flower Market: Every Sunday this tiny street comes alive and hoards of people clamour about to get great deals on flowers and plants. There is often live music and it’s an interesting place to grab a coffee or a pint. Street Art…

Portugal is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated holiday destinations in Europe. It has great food, weather, gorgeous natural beaches and lots of history. It’s also super easy to drive around as the highways are impeccable and it’s kid friendly. Plus – they have amazing wine and Port! We went for a week and visited Lisbon and the Alentejo region, and will definitely be going back to relax in picturesque Algarve as well as spend time in Porto and the incredible Douro wine region, both situated in the northern part of the country.   LISBON Lisbon is a…
